You leave footprints of decay. No plant may live where you have walked.
Unlike other deities who govern the mutable aspects of the mortal realm, you are a divine permanence, the personification of death and the inevitable finality for all life. You are the blackened gate through which all things must pass, as well as the caretaker of souls in their eternal resting place. However, far from being a harbinger of chaos, you may feel a strong sense of duty and devotion to your uniquely reverent role in the cosmos. Much like deities of Wisdom, mortals understand you least of all divine beings, yet they give offerings to you to both safeguard their ancestors and to be merciful to them during their infinite rest. Your mythological equivalents are Greece’s Hades, Egypt’s Osiris, Scandinavia’s Hel, and India’s Yama.
